The album features 12 amazing songs and takes veteran fans and new listeners on an incredible journey through ancient Egypt.
In detail, Cleopatra the Seventh (Cleopatra VII) is seen as a symbol of feminine power and wisdom. And yes, there were several ‘Cleopatra’ in history, but the most notorious is the one we refer to, the Seventh!
Differently from Hollywood’s perspective in which Cleopatra’s legacy was justified by her seduction skills, she was raised amongst the rich book collection of Alexandria, has mastered at least seven languages and possessed great intellectual culture. The ‘Qyeen of Kings’ has absolutely been, and may still be considered one of the most influential women in history if we bring to light her achievements in life and her reign in Egypt.
Based on these historical facts, Cleopatra VIl’s artwork has been conceived, where the character appears looking forward with her head up high, chin up, gazing at the horizon with a challenging look, for that’s what she is: challenging and provocative. The pyramids behind her are represented by geometrical figures tho along with the wigs of the mighty Goddess Isis simbolyse Cleopatra’s ascension to the Sun, the light that also shines towards the name Medjay that represents not only the name of the bond but the concept of a warrior people. Most of the elements are golden as a symbol of sacredness of these elements on a dork background to represent her little-known pgst. jf the bottom we also have the hieroglyphs showing the people’s appreciation for their queen.
The band Medjay was formed in 2018 in the city of Belo Horizonte. Its founder and bassist Samuka sought to create an authorial band where he could put in his lyrics and concept the richness of Egyptian history. The band makes a power metal with influences of Arab musicality and seeks to provide in their shows an immersion into this rich culture. For that, it counts with participation of Arab percussions and belly dancing.
